Some of the camps will put you through a lifeguard certifications when you get to camp, whilst others will need you to get one from home first.
The campers love spending their time at camp working on projects to take home and show off to their parents, or learning new skills in dance, music or drama. Some camps will offer some less traditional artistic skills like glass blowing or 3D printing, so the campers have the ability to learn some pretty niche skills!
